Life Insurance Epigenetics Startup Foxo Plans to Go Public Via SPAC

Foxo Technologies Inc., whose artificial intelligence and genetics technology is used to underwrite life insurance, is going public through a deal with a blank-check company, according to Bloomberg.

The merger with Delwinds Insurance Acquisition Corp. (NYSE:DWIN) will value the combined company at $369 million.

Delwinds raised $201 million in an initial public offering in 2020.


Forbes Announces Fourth Quarter & Full-Year 2021 Financial Results

Forbes Global Media Holdings, Inc., which is pursuing a business combination with Magnum Opus Acquisition Limited (NYSE: OPA), today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2021.

Throughout the fourth quarter, revenue increased 51 percent year-over-year to $94 million, driven by contributions across Media and Consumer businesses. In particular, the Company’s Consumer business was up 72 percent in the fourth quarter year-over-year.

For 2021, revenue increased 40 percent to $259 million compared to $185 million in the prior year period; this exceeded our prior projections of $225 million by 15 percent.

Solar Startup Heliogen’s CEO Pay Could Top Goldman Sachs

A solar-power startup little known outside of the energy industry gave its chief executive officer a bigger pay package last year than banking giant Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE:GS) lavished on its own leader. It’s also in excess of what Chevron Corp. (NYSE:CVX) and NextEra Energy Inc. (NYSE:NEE) are paying their top executives this year.

Pasadena, California-based Heliogen Inc. (NYSE:HLGN) provided chief executive officer Bill T. Gross with compensation worth $37 million for 2021, according to a filing last month after it went public with Athena Technology in late December.

Gross’s award, however, comes with a catch: It almost entirely consists of options that vest over four years and will be valueless unless he helps lift the company’s stock price back above $9. The shares closed at $4.07 on Tuesday.
